For consumers who are willing to venture beyond the land of the sub $1000 point and shoot and into the land of the semi-pro, this may be the last camera they ever need to purchase.
The EOS 20D features an 8.2 megapixel CMOS sensor that Canon claims reduces noise compared to earlier design. Photos can be rendered as large as 3504 x 2336, plenty big for nearly any application and excellent for cropping. The speed of the camera and processing power inside allows the 20D to capture 5 frames per second for up to 23 shots.
Active Reactor Watch Review
The Active Reactor from Radio Active is one of the coolest watches we've ever seen. It's also one of the more comfortable stainless steel watches. It has a smooth beveled edge and thick band that feels nice and substantial. Two simple buttons on the right allow you to check and set the time. The first reaction to the reactor from most people is, 'how the heck do you tell the time with that watch'' Well it's actually pretty simple and dare I say fun to check the time.

The picture to the left shows the time as 11:48. Here's how it works. There are three sets of LED indicators on the face of the watch. The vertical series of 6 labeled 'Danger' on the right indicate the hour. Of course 6 hours we'll only get you through half a full clock cycle. The blinking LED labeled 'Warning' in the top left corner indicates hours 7 through 12. When it's blinking you just add 6 to the number of hours indicated by the vertical series.
